Google Books
Access: Freely available Internet database
Description: Digitized books from around the world. When you find a book that is still under copyright, you see only a small portion of the book at a time—either the Snippet View or the Sample Pages View—plus links to places where you can buy or borrow it. If you find a book that is out of copyright (in the public domain), however, you see the Full Book View displayed. The complete book can be downloaded as a PDF.
Personalization: “My Library” allows you to create a personalized library on Google Books which allows you to label, review, rate, and search a customized selection of books. These collections live online, and are accessible anywhere you can log in to your Google account.
Output Formats: Full-View Titles are available to be downloaded as PDFs.
Help: For further assistance, Ask the Library.
Users: unlimited concurrent users
Producer: Google
